The Courting of Mary

I fell in love with a beautiful maid

and Mary was her name.

Never was there a more beautiful lass

that I have ever known.

I sent her pretty flowers

and a note with all my love.

I sent her lovely sweets

and sang beneath her window.

I asked her to be my bride

and come away with me.

My heart was nearly broken

when she married Freddie McGhee.
